Today in History

Today is Saturday, Aug. 15, the 227th day of 2009. There are 138 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History:

On Aug. 15, 1945, Japanese Emperor Hirohito announced to his subjects in a prerecorded radio address that Japan had accepted terms of surrender for ending World War II.

On this date:

In 1057, Macbeth, King of Scots, was killed in battle by Malcolm, the eldest son of King Duncan, whom Macbeth had slain.


"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
 That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."


“I really have nothing to add.”
— Quine, quoted
on this date in 1998.
